As you know, Crystal 4 will have 2 movies.

But will they split them into 11 episodes?

For example, anime "Yuri on Ice", which will be in theaters in September, will have 3 volumes.

Each volume is split into 4 episodes. And the audiences don't have to wait so long between release dates.

vol.1:9/23(土)~9/29(金)第1~第4滑走
vol.2:9/30(土)~10/6(金)第5~第8滑走
vol.3:10/7(土)~10/13(金)第9~最終滑走
※期間限定公開!!

If they release it as DVD, there will not be any different from a TV-Series.

It is still the same format. They just don't air it on TV.

I hope so. Is it cheaper to have one big budget movie than to air it on TV...?

They can pull something like the Digimon tri. films when making them available across the Pacific.

Yeah but that's a 12-episode series re-cut into 3 movies. Plus it's already out on Blu-Ray and DVD. http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interes ... gs/.118933

In terms of initial release it will be 2 movies full stop no if's and no buts.

However when it comes to home video release it MAY differ but don't count on it.

For example Yamato 2202 *IS* split in to episodes but is being released as movies approx every 4 months
vol 1 eps 1 - 2 Feb 2017
vol 2 eps 3 - 6 July 2017
vol 3 eps 7 - 11 December 2017

You can be pretty certain that the Japanese theatrical release WILL be a film and WILL be released in the same format on home video in Japan.

What happens later with regards to international release / streaming releases is another matter...and well only Toei knows that answer.

...What are you guys talking about with Yuri on Ice? The creator literally said it won't be a compilation film but a brand new story, and we don't have any release date info -- at least none that I could find on Google. Did news drop without anyone realizing?

Can someone please cite or provide a source for the Yuri on Ice info?

We just don't have enough information to know and as far as I'm aware, there's no precedent for something like this happening in anime, so that makes it harder to predict what will happen All we can do is wait patiently for more information.

Maybe they'll show episodes instead of movies in cinemas.
Here in Germany there are sometimes special anime screenings in cinemas, where they show 3-4 episodes of an anime series that's going to get released on blu-ray / DVD soon.
